UK: Half of Britons don't think questioning Israel's right to exist is antisemitic

Via YouGov:

Just 53% of Britons think that hating Israel and questioning its right to exist is antisemitic.   21% think it's not antisemitic, and 26% have no opinion on the topic.

In other news, just 27% thinks Ken Livingstone is antisemitic.  45% think it was right of the Labour Party to suspend him.

Just 9% think criticizing the Israeli government is antisemitic (it isn't, as long as it's actual criticism and not of the 'Netanyahu is a Nazi, child-murderer' variety)

23% think antisemitism is a big problem for the Labour Party, 30% think it's a small problem and 48% either think it's not a problem at all or don't know.
